Can anyone recognize this rose in this basket? I tried searching around the internet...but there are WAY to many types of roses.
I'd like to plant one, or one like it for my husbands grandmother.
Thanks in advance for any help!
If you look on the link below, you'll see photos of florist roses. Look closely at Lipstick and Gypsy Leonidas.
Anyway, the florist who prepared that beautiful bouquet may well know the variety name of the rose they used in it.
Florist roses thrive in controlled conditions inside greenhouses. Sometimes they are not easy to grow outdoors.
You might do better with a garden rose that is similar in appearance, or one with a name that has special meaning. HelpMeFind.com has a search function for roses by name.

My vote is for Gypsy Leonidas too (just plain old "Leonidas" is usually more brown than orange). Since you are in Houston, you can handle roses grown on Fortuniana rootstock, so I'll point you to K&M Nursery (Mr. Jim Mills), no web page, send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (601) 648-2908 (during the week) to ask if he might have this available.
petaloid, I didn't even think to ask the florist...duh! thanks for all the usefull information! Judging by the pictures it's closer to lipstick than the gypsy one.
diane, thanks for the referral. I will check it out...
You guys are wonderful!
